INFORMACIÓN SOBRE EL CONTENIDO DE LOS SEMINARIOS

Título: Publish or Perish, Part 1: Why, When, Where, How much?
Juan D. Tardós, Dept. Informática e Ingeniería de Sistemas, Universidad de Zaragoza

For a researcher, publishing his/her results is one of the most important activities. The goal of these seminars is to get a deeper understanding of the academic publishing process. This first talk will address the following topics:
1. Why publish?
2. When publish?
3. Where publish? Journal and conference rankings. Impact Factor.
4. How are researchers evaluated? Quantity, Quality, Impact.
5. Useful tools: ISI web, Google Scholar, PoP, SCImago,...

This presentation will include practical examples of how to use the available tools to solve common questions such as how to find the most relevant journals and conferences, influential papers and "hot topics" in a research area, or how to find quality indicators of our publications and how to report them in a CV or an accreditation application.

Juan D. Tardós is professor on Systems Engineering and Automatic Control at the University of Zaragoza. His research area is perception and environment understanding in robotics. He is co-author of one book and more than 60 journal and conference papers on these topics. He has served for several conferences and journals, reviewing more than 200 papers. He has handled +80 papers as Associate Editor of the IEEE  Transactions on Robotics, IROS and RSS, obtaining reviews and writing recommendations for their publication or rejection. This presentation  reflects his own experience and opinions.

 

Título: Publish or Perish, Part 2: How?
Juan D. Tardós, Dept. Informática e Ingeniería de Sistemas, Universidad de Zaragoza

For a researcher, publishing his/her results is one of the most important activities. This second part will analyze how does the academic publishing process work, and will provide some practical recommendations to successfully address the main milestones. This talk will address:
1. The publishing process. How does it work?
2. How to write a paper?
3. How to reply to referees?
4. How to write a review?
5. Ethical Issues: Authorship, Plagiarism, Salami slicing, Conflicts of interest,...

 

Título: How to give a good research talk
Diego Gutiérrez, Dept. Informática e Ingeniería de Sistemas, Universidad de Zaragoza

So you have a great paper, with the results of this awesome technique you've been working on for the last year. The conference is just around the corner, and you have exactly 20 minutes to summarize... well, everything. How are you going to pull that off? How are you going to condensate all those months of hard work in so little time? It's clearly impossible, right? Or is it? How do you deliver the right message, without boring people to death? How do you know what to tell (and how to tell it), and what to leave out? This seminar will answer those questions (and more!) and offer additional insight about how to deliver a good research talk while making sure your message doesn't get lost in the noise.

Diego Gutiérrez is Full Professor at the University of Zaragoza. He is a member of the Instituto de Investigación en Ingeniería de Aragón and   heads the research group Graphics and Imaging Lab. His areas of research include global illumination techniques, computational photography and exploiting the mechanisms of human perception for image synthesis and scene understanding. He has given a large number of talks at conferences, and has been an invited speaker at several prestigious institutions. He's an Associate Editor of three journals (IEEE Computer Graphics & Applications, ACM Transactions on Applied Perception and Computers & Graphics), and has served on numerous program committees. He regularly collaborates with companies and universities such as Disney, Adobe, NASA, MIT or Stanford. He has received several awards in his career, including the Google Faculty Research Award in 2015. He also received the ERC Consolidator Grant, from the European Research Council, worth 1.7 million euros, to study computational image and human perception.

 

Título: Manage your research career. Life after PhD.
Luis Montesano, Dept. Informática e Ingeniería de Sistemas, Universidad de Zaragoza

After several years of hard work you completed your MsC and are about to finish your PhD. The question is: what now? What should I do? What
opportunities exist out there? How do I continue my career? This talk will discuss these issues and will present the main national and  international opportunities for pursuing a research career including post-doctoral fellowships, funding programs, application procedures for professorships or industrial opportunities for PhDs. The talk will also consider important aspects for a successful career such as writing your application, networking or how to select a research topic or your next institution.

Luis Montesano is Profesor Titular at the University of Zaragoza and Chief Scientific Officer of BitBrain Technologies. He has been involved and raised funds for research in 25+ projects from public entities such as the European Commission and the Spanish Ministry of Science. He has 60+ research publications in the areas of neuroscience, neural engineering, brain-machine technology, machine learning, computational learning, human-computer interaction, motor neurorehabilitation and intelligent robotics. Related to the talk topic, he has applied to almost every possible programme for funding including personal fellowships and research projects. For three years, he was a post-doc at Instituto Superior Tecnico in Lisbon. He was also awarded a Ramon y Cajal Fellowship. He has written and participated in several EU projects, Portuguese and Spanish national projects and, more recently, he has been involved in projects with industry.

 

Título: Funds for your job: where to look for? How to request?
F. Javier Zarazaga-Soria, Dept. Informática e Ingeniería de Sistemas, Universidad de Zaragoza

An important challenge every researcher finds sooner o later is how to fund his research work. There is a variety of local, national or  international calls for funding research projects. This presentation will provide an overview of the different opportunities to get funding for research projects. The application procedures and the different requirements of the calls will be also analysed.

Javier Zarazaga holds MS degree in Computer Science from the University of Valencia and PhD degree from the University of Zaragoza. He did his master’s thesis at Road Safety Engineering Laboratory (University of London). Since 1994 he belongs to the Advanced Information Systems Group (IAAA), he began to work as Assistant Professor at the University of Zaragoza in 1996 and he got a position as Associated Professor in 2003. Since January 2015 he is the director of the IAAA Group. He has collaborated in more than 40 R+D projects, among which are remarkable 4 projects funded by the European Commission, being the coordinator in one of them, and more than 20 projects funded by national competitive calls, being the main researcher in 7 of them. In addition, he has also collaborated on more than 20 research contracts with national and international organizations and a number of technology transfer projects. In this line highlights its involvement in the setup of GeoSpatiumLab, a spin-off company, in 2007. As a result of his research activity, Javier Zarazaga is coauthor of more than 50 papers published in international journals and book chapters, as well as 90 publications in national and international conference proceedings.
